Being an artist certainly presents its own challenges. One of the most prevalent in my current experience, seems to be in stretching myself, creatively speaking. Not that there is anything wrong with reaching beyond your own understanding of artistic principles; on the contrary, keeping a fresh perspective and learning to look at something from another angle is a natural and healthy exercise.
So it is with that attitude that I delve into an all-new project: an acrylic painting, styled after the Art Nouveau movement popularized by Alphonse Mucha. In my travels through cyberspace, I have discovered that Art Nouveau has attracted the attention of a whole cross section of pop culture: science fiction film and television fanboys/fangirls with artistic aptitude. These incredibly beautiful and innovative designs display a new found affinity for the art form.
